Hey, did you know that Spanish is the primary language spoken at home by over 35 million people in the US? And that the US is the world’s fifth-largest Spanish-speaking community? Wow, pretty wild! So in honor of the language of Lorca and Neruda and also our favorite soap opera La Rosa De Guadalupe, we asked some of our fave funny women to write a poem with whatever words of Spanish they know. It turned out… ok!
What time is it? IT’S TWEET ROUNDUP TIME BAYBEEEEEEE!
It’s been a wild week in politics/sports/global warming, let’s celebrate the weekend with some delicious 140-character comedy! How divine.

YES this is a tweet about a snap. But Megan’s takeover was truly a work of art.
Went to a party and panicked for about three hours straight tonight. Highlight was when a guy asked me if I would “outgrow” my anxiety LOLZ

The year was 2016. We were all kinda into the Rio Olympics. Trump hadn’t been shot into space yet. And no one was used to having chip cards.

We nominate this woman to narrate the 2016 documentary 40 years from now because she is perfection.
it took me until my mid-20s to realize “smiling while driving recklessly” was not the same as being sexually compelling & even now I forget
— Mallory Ortberg (@mallelis) August 6, 2016
This sounds pretty goddamn sexually compelling to us.

it still confuses me that my mom’s email isn’t email@example.com

Also that her first name isn’t Mom???
I want to respect Malia’s privacy but am worried there was no Cinnamon Toast Crunch at Lollapalooza. A girl’s first time should be special
— Drew (@MostlyPregnant) August 11, 2016
Everyone’s just mad because Malia’s cooler than they were in high school. Give the child some cereal.

I bought an old house that came with a gramophone but no matter what record I pick it plays a song called “Go Into The Furnace”-any advice?
— Me, Sarah Shockey!! (@sarahjoyshockey) August 10, 2016
Looks like you gotta go in to that furnace, bro.
Both my shampoo and conditioner ran out at the exact same time. Rare, like when a couple dies holding hands in bed after 70 yrs of marriage.
— Lauren Reeves (@laurenreeves) August 12, 2016
Rare… and beautiful.
Ugh, this election, right? So much fighting, so many awkward conversations with your cranky old relatives.
Dontcha just wish someone would write a fun song explaining how they’re voting? Ooooooh girl, do we have a sick accordion/banjo/guitar trio for you. Femmedy Trio, y’all should be on CNN.
This video is too friggin cute. Some of our fave funny and talented women of all time got together to serenade Hillary for the DNC, including America Ferrera, Jane Fonda, Mandy Moore, Julie Bowen, and of course our girl Banks. WE’RE NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING, SHUT UP.
Some weeks are lazy rivers, and some weeks are category 5 rapids. This one was the second one. Big ups to all the funny Twitterers who kept us thinkin’ and laughin’.
It’s silly to think you can’t criticize America while still loving it. I criticize the things I love the most, just ask my boyfriend.
